As the hot Summer rolls on to what is thus far a gorgeous early Fall, bullying has crept back into our lexicon rather strongly. Gangs in NY bullying and beating suspected gay persons, 4 kids at one Cleveland area high school committing suicide over bullying and now we can add progressives and their supporters trying to bully an entire nation into going along with their agenda.
That is exactly what this is – bullying! Trying to cow and intimidate voters into not accepting any premise of the Tea Party principles. Those who disagree call all sorts of names to those of us who actually believe this nation should be run by one of it’s main tenets – the consent of the governed.
How is one who wants government to be smaller and less overbearing in some way problematic? Simple – because we disagree with the crowd that accepts progressive ideology. That man is too flawed to decide his own fate. That society now demands centralized direction and control for the good of the collective. Sorry you “collective” cats, but that is not how this nation was constituted or run before progressives showed up and regaled us with how smart they think they are, and worse, how stupid they think any who do not agree with them are.
I even read an article on AC this morning that claims the Tea Parties are a “scam.” A scam? Say what? So progressivism is an erudite and forthright principle, yet people wanting the nation to be run as constituted are victims of a “scam?” Or is it an implication that Tea Party supporters are also perpetrating the alleged scam?
This is bullying. This is people who see their agenda slipping from their grasp due to their impending loss of political legislative and executive power. These people and their willing media friends push this bullying to the point that it has become a cottage industry to bash, what polling has recently revealed, is 70% of the nation’s citizens. Bashing people who want nothing more than strict construction of the Constitution. An adherence to the Founder’s principles that government that governs least, governs best.
Is it racist to not want a progressive agenda? Is it indicative of a small mind to wish for us to be governed as the Framer’s intended? Is one an ignorant redneck for wanting DC to leave us alone? How is government spending our money in ways we object to any indication of ignorance, racism or hate? How is our fearing and trying to prevent despotic government from entrenching itself worthy of attack? Can one of the bullies hook me up here? We are as entitled to our ideological beliefs as the bullies are.
Like all bullies, these political bullies use their imagined superiority as the basis for their actions. They are not superior to anyone at all. It is they that demand change, and they demonize the huge majority that does not agree we want or need the change the bullies wish to see. The bullies play as if anyone not in favor of their agenda is the one with the problem, thus worthy of derision.
Again, it is incumbent upon them, the change merchants, to prove and convince the majority that their desired future reality is one we agree to accept. We are a nation ruled under the concept of the “consent of the governed.” For the dolts, that means if we say no, no it is.
Based upon recent polling, we win, the change merchants lose and they should act like good sports and accept those facts with a modicum of grace, but no, petulance and protest are their way. Scream the longest, loudest and most foul and hope for the best is their way. To bully and demonize is their way. Despite polls that show liberalism has fallen to a mere 20% of the nation’s citizens while conservatism has grown, and a full 70% of Americans agree with the principles of the Tea Party movement.
Is it any wonder we reject their desired change, if for no other reason, then the way they present, demand and demonize? So they want me to go along, but if I balk in any way they think offending and then slapping at me will turn me to their desires. That’s a recipe for a swift kick in the ass and clearly NOT one that will cause me to want to see things their way.
If one were to ask me, I would turn it back around on them. How is it I am the stupid one? I am a member of the self identified largest group of Americans – both a conservative as well as a Tea Party supporter. Riddle me that, oh big brained ones. They can’t and they know it, but they can call me names and bully me, can’t they? Well, they can try anyway, but as evidence clearly shows, they are failing as miserably as their ideology. Just three more little weeks y’all.
